Man my email notification has been slacking on me, I didn't realize how many posts this thread has got over the last week!

@Skilove that pic is pretty damn slick, and also thanks for posting some links and tutorials.

I'll shall post a new image shortly.

@Snook, thanks as well, every image I do, I spend alil more time on than the one before.


@Morpheous "This image is sick! Please tell me your lighting setup!! I have one 580exII and two 430exII's can achieve the same effect with a three light setup? All the lights can be triggered via my canon ste-2. I also have a ring light modifier for the flash gun."

You can achieve the same if not better effects with a three light set up.. to be completely honest, I only used my ABR800 Ringflash for that shot, and let the sunlight give me some directional light as well. I have been working with a lot of sunlight lately, its fun.

Re: Official "The Look" Thread

I told some people in an older post that if you are on a Big Bugdet, in other words NO MONEY..:+}, you can buy 2 small mirrors and redirect full sun to the sides of the model to act like kickers. Not the greatest but works pretty well when you need it to..
and it is cheap.
Good job and keep up the good work.

Yes I would like to make a shout out to my buddy Sun. Thank you Sun for always being there for me, and letting me use your free power without upping the bills. Thank you.

I really had no idea where I was going with this one, but here you go. I played around with a lot of things with this one..
